The Leftmedia's Suicidal Assassination of Trump
The only way to escape the raging flood of anti-Trump effluent from the media is to completely unplug.
In what passes for “journalism” these days, the inmates are running the asylum. Not only is over 90% of all media coverage of President Donald Trump decidedly negative, the media continues to equate Trump to an American Hitler, claiming he is silencing free speech and endangering a free press.
Seriously? The only way to escape the raging flood of anti-Trump effluent from the Leftmedia propaganda machine is to completely unplug. Sports doesn’t even give us a break, as ESPN rehired Keith Olbermann despite his vicious comments about Trump and Trump supporters. Having taken a massive ratings hit though, ESPN may be starting to get the message.
Regardless, if Trump is suppressing free speech he is doing a horrible job of it.
CNN’s Jim Acosta, known primarily as the idiot who screams at Trump, laughably told fellow anti-Trumper and late-night host Stephen Colbert that journalists are “not supposed to be the story.” He’s right, yet the media continues to make itself the story.
Last week, more than 350 media outlets from around the country colluded on editorials protesting President Trump, claiming to be victims of his attacks on “fake news.” Because nothing says “we’re not coordinating negative coverage to take down President Trump” like hundreds of newspapers simultaneously printing editorials attacking Trump.
On the matter of “fake news,” President Trump is not always articulate, but he is usually right. The evidence of intentional misrepresentation of facts by the media is impossible to miss. Examples of media bias range from selective omissions of relevant facts to editorials masquerading as news to outright lies. We don’t even have to go back far to find glaring examples.
When Trump called fired White House employee and “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault-Newman a “dog” for releasing tapes she secretly recorded inside the West Wing, the media almost universally claimed it to be a racist comment. Does that mean journalists equate black people with dogs? Trump certainly doesn’t, based on the list of people he has called a “dog” on Twitter, including Mitt Romney, pasty actor Robert Pattinson, and anti-Trumpers George Will, Erick Erickson, and Bill Maher … all white.
This same duplicitous media portrays black rapper Kanye West, a big Trump supporter, as a race traitor. Journalists ignore the fact that the Trump administration is actively working to help poor black children escape failing schools, working on criminal justice reform (which will disproportionately benefit the black community), and they largely ignore the fact that Trump’s economic policies have resulted in the lowest black and Hispanic unemployment rates ever recorded. As with the claims of Trump suppressing free speech, if Trump is a racist, he is doing a horrible job!
And, of course, most media outlets avoid reporting Trump’s 36% approval rating among black Americans, an amazing number considering it was just 19% last year, and just 8% of blacks voted for Trump in 2016. Democrats must be terrified, which is why the media is ramping up the “Trump’s a racist” stories.
The media is also attempting to spin Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani’s comment that “truth is not truth” as some Orwellian redefinition, intentionally taking it out of context to make him appear to endorse lying. Even NBC interviewer Chuck Todd admitted Giuliani was right.
Some of the egregious examples of journalistic deceit come in what is NOT reported. For example, Trump’s ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) department is under fire from the open-borders Left for being inherently racist and for ripping illegal-alien families apart.
So it should come as no surprise that when journalists covered the story of an illegal alien arrested by ICE as he drove his pregnant wife to the hospital, they conveniently omitted the very crucial detail that he was wanted for murder. This omission is intentionally deceitful.
Media giants desperately try to convince us they are unbiased, but their actions reveal their dishonesty. Even before the election, major media outlets announced their intentions to destroy Trump at all cost. New York Times editor Dean Baquet openly admitted his publication would attack Trump in a way never done to any candidate before. Other rags took their cue to follow.
By contrast, as Barack Obama attacked the free press, that same press actively colluded with Obama and Hillary Clinton to protect them and influence elections. And today news outlets use high-ranking former Obama administration officials, like CIA Director John Brennan and DNI James Clapper, to attack Trump, despite those two having been exposed for repeatedly lying and committing perjury.
The Leftmedia has spent two years spewing 24/7 coverage of the alleged Trump/Russia collusion investigation despite zero evidence, yet ignores mountains of evidence of Hillary’s felonious behavior, including taking bribes from Russian oligarchs.
The public is well aware of this anti-Trump crusade, and the media is paying a price. A staggering 70% of Americans believe mainstream media outlets report stories “they know to be fake, false or purposely misleading.”
At the end of the day, in their relentless effort to assassinate Trump, the Leftmedia is committing professional suicide.
